Unit 125 is a starting point of Cambodia’s resistance movement prior to the founding of the United Front for Salvation of Cambodian Motherland (Dec. 2, 1978), and then stepping forward to abolish the genocidal regime and revive the country.

Unit 125 was established on May 12, 1978 in Long Giao commune, Cam My district, Dong Nai province with Viet Nam ’s assistance. It was manned by over 200 Cambodian officials and soldiers, led by Hun Sen.

Prominent among the guests at the event were Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen.

Opening the ceremony, PM Hun Sen thanked the Party, Government, army and people of Viet Nam , especially Military Zone 7 and Dong Nai province, for their support in building the memorial.

He said the site helps the next generations be aware of the fraternal relationship and solidarity between Cambodia and Viet Nam .

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said the Vietnamese people always treasure and remember the images of Cambodian soldiers and people who stood side by side with Vietnamese army and people in the struggle for independence for the two countries.

The inauguration of the memorial coincides with celebrations of the victory over the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime (January 7, 1979) and the 45 th anniversary of Viet Nam-Cambodia diplomatic ties (June 24, 1967-2012).
